A blend of 1/3 young beer and 2/3 of beer aged 2 years in large oak vats. The more important proportion of oak matured beer contributes to its fruity taste, complexity and intensity. The finish is worthy of a great wine.

100th Rating. 2007 Btl. Tart and tangy. Clean but dense mahogany red color. Weird head that lingers but leaves no lace. Nose of fermented soybean, currants, blueberry? Palate is not a pucker bomb, nor does it lack acidity, nice balance. Fig, blood orange, sour patch kids, braeburn apples. Slick richness from the oak. Lingering finish without being overbearing. Balsamic-esque. This beer is what i call the ultimate food beer.

I really can’t see the point of this beer. Very sour taste...like drinking vinegar.

Still one of my favorite beers, period. As a fairly readily available beer out here in Japan I can’t complain, this takes some beating

Amber to brown colour. Head doesn’t last very long. Taste of different berries and acid.

Bottle. Hazy brown with a medium sized light brown head. Lots of fruit; black cherries, black berries, raspberries. Light wet wood, plum, prunes, white wood. Medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation, medium sweet and light/medium sour. Both flavourful and drinkable. Medium and quite soft finish that is also a little bit too sweet for my taste.

Muggus69 (1181) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - AUG 21, 2014
330mL BB 29.10.15 Deep bronzed body, holds a dense beige head. Good complex, funky nose; balsamic & red wine vinegar, cocoa, green apple, roasted nuts, lots of charred & old musty wood, dried fruit undertones. Body is full, creamy carbonation, quite rich with a acetic acid bite cutting through providing balance & length. Such a joyful mix of flavours; dark chocolate malt, caramelised balsamic, cooked & fresh green apples, charred oak, plums, raisins & vinous dried fruits. Wonderful stuff - so complex, confronting at first with a sweet & sour balance but rewarding and delicious.

Bottle. Pour is dark with a medium foamy head, aroma is malty, fruity, sweet. Taste is light acidity with alcohol notes and fruity esters with lively carbonation and a light acidic finish. Very enjoyable

Een bier met een heel uitgesproken smaak, maar het was absoluut mijn ding niet.

Lele (107) - Padova, ITALY - AUG 15, 2014
Schiuma leggermente beige, fine e molto persistente. Colore ambrato scuro un po’ torbido. Al nato si avvertono note acide, simili proprio all’aceto. In bocca si avverte un acido di classe, una sorta di mela acida e crauti. Si avverte anche un legnoso di classe. Alla fine della bottiglia, però, un po’ stanca. Giudizio complessivo: una più che soddisfacente Sour Flemish Ale.

Decent tartness, perfume, bit of cherry, marzipan. Sourness and flavour comes in a hit, but the finish is sweet and lingering.
